  • Acclimating Research Animals Through Effective Nurturing

    Welcoming a new cohort of animals into your facility can be very exciting for the research team; this is, unfortunately, very stressful for the animals. Stress induced by transportation, cage changes, initial weigh-ins, and changes in food and watering systems is very common when animals... Read more

  • Webinar review: Patient-Derived Xenografts on Humanized Mice

    Dr. Jens Hoffmann of EPO presented a webinar highlighting new data on preclinical immuno-oncology research using humanized models. The growth in immuno-oncology (IO) research has created a need for more relevant models. The IO field includes many types of drugs, including: genetically engineered immune cells... Read more

  • Raising Heart Health Awareness: American Heart Month

    February marks American Heart Month — a campaign aimed at educating citizens about the importance of cardiovascular health.

  • Rederivation of Mouse Models at Higher Health Statuses

    Rederiving murine research models is the process of transferring embryos from one animal into another which is either germ-free or hosts only specifically identified microbiota. This "resets" the health status of the line, allowing the offspring of mice or rats that were previously infected with... Read more

  • Animal Models in Space Research

    On Wednesday, December 5th, the Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket launched to the International Space Station (ISS) carrying 5,600 lbs of supplies; a small portion of which were mice of varying ages2. Animal models have been used in space research since the 1940s, and these ongoing... Read more

  • A Simple Guide to CRISPR

    In the short time since the introduction of CRISPR technology in 1987, it has proved to be a valuable tool. In 2018, there were over 17,000 publications on CRISPR gene editing technology compared to seven years earlier when there were less than 100 publications. The... Read more
